    things i dont like about fz is it doesn't have a manual kick, seat height 1cm higher compare to gixxer & scratch prone tank as it is made of fibre,& 10k costly to gixxer now do these things matter as much?
    Seat height of both bike will not be a problem if you have average height(e.g. 5'5"). Kick option will not make any difference if you do not live in extreme cold area. The extra cost for fzs v2 is for fuel injection system. If you like gixxer then go for it. It'll be also a very good bike. In fact I like gixxer over fzs v2.

    As You mentioned earlier as you'll be mostly doing city rides than highways, The fairing is almost useless. Fairings are only useful after a certain amount of speed, which is mostly accquired in Highways. The FZ is more Fuel efficient than a Gixxer. Yamaha Spares AFAIK are easier to Obtain than Suzuki (atleast in my hometown) The carburettor setup on Gixxer sees that you can present it to your local mechanic for tuning etc. But the FZ will be requiring more experienced hands at work because of Fi System.

    At the end of the Day, A Test Ride can Cool Your Head..!! Best Of Luck, Ride Safe , Invest in A Nice Gear too
    Cheers
